This Analyst Is Bullish On Okta Ahead Of Its Quarterly Results

·1 min read
  • Needham analyst Alex Henderson reiterated a Buy and $135 price target on Okta, Inc (NASDAQ: OKTA), which will report its quarterly results on August 31.

  • The analyst thinks they will beat and raise, but expectations align with the outcome.

  • Last quarter, the stock had an outsized reaction to low expectations due to the hack announced in early CY22, he said.

  • The firm beat and no impact from the hack led to a positive reaction against low expectations, Henderson noted.

  • This quarter, he did not see those same dynamics. He still expects a positive reaction to the print.

  • Henderson writes that Okta is more insulated from recessionary pressures than some might consider, as per seat pricing is sticky within contract periods and only resets on the renewals.

  • Further, upsell, DBNR, new customer growth, and international expansion are helping drive robust growth.

  • The customer-facing business of Auth0, now apples-to-apples, is growing faster than Okta's employee unit.

  • Price Action: OKTA shares traded lower by 5.63% at $93.02 on the last check Friday.
